    In Angola exist 18 provinces.
    Existem, e não Existe.
    Neste caso, o verbo deve concordar com o predicativo.

    Alternativa: There are 18 provinces in Angola.

    "In Angola, 18 provinces exist", is not very idiomatic.

    "There are eighteen provinces in Angola" or
    "Angola has eighteen provinces"

    are both better.

    (Oxford style is generally to write/spell out numbers below 100 and use figures above that.)
